Coram’s two-year staff fundraising partnership with leading law firm Olswang came to an end in 2013 after a hugely successful appeal.
Staff across the firm took part in a wide range of activities to raise funds for Coram, often drawing upon their own creative skills. This included holding an ‘Olswang’s Got Talent’ show and staging OJAM – a music festival held in Coram’s gardens with a ‘house band’ made up of colleagues from across the business. In total, Olswang raised a fantastic £100,000 for Coram to help us improve more children’s lives.
In addition to the financial support they provided, Coram was also able to draw upon the skills and talents of colleagues within the business in a range of ways. We benefited from pro bono legal advice and support; we developed CV-writing workshops for young people in our Supported Housing programme; whilst teams also volunteered at Coram to help renovate an important part of our campus.
We are incredibly grateful for Olswang’s past and ongoing support.
